Default Dimming street lights?

Ford etc obviously weren't so parsimonious as Rover/Lucas. My SD1 has the
terminals marked on the indicator switch for the parking lights - but the
actual terminals and the internal switch bits aren't present. Nor is the
wiring. So they obviously thought it worthwhile making a different version
for Germany.

Don't recall ever seeing another SD1 other than mine in my 5 years in
Germany

There are a couple in the club.

I do sometimes use the parking lights on my BMW and have been on the
lookout for the correct switch for the SD1 for ages. Be easy enough to
wire it in. But have never seen one.
